Massachusetts General Hospital Upgraded to the Latest Version of QC PathFinder®

CAMBRIDGE, MA, – Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is the most recent hospital to be upgraded to QC PathFinder® Version 5.1 and joins an increasing number of hospitals using the latest version. MGH is one of the earliest adopters of Vecna’s electronic infection surveillance software and has been an important contributor to the development of QC PathFinder®. “MGH has been a valuable development partner since the beginning and we are delighted to get them upgraded to Version 5.1,” says Ron Urwongse, Product Manager of QC PathFinder®. Version 5.1 supports submission of HAI reports to the CDC’s National Health Safety Network (NHSN) program, and also includes support for non-culture tests such as Hepatitis, Influenza, and Varicella. Finally, support for pharmacy reports is available with this latest version, allowing customers to quickly adopt reports for adverse-drug events, IV-PO interchange, and restricted drugs.
